Planet Hunters Talk

General help and bugs during relaunch

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist

    We've had some big changes as you might have noticed. We hope you enjoy the new Planet Hunters.

    If you need a quick answer to something on the site (main site or Talk) during the relaunch period then here's the place to ask. The science team, Zooniverse development team, and the moderators will be checking in on this thread over the next few days and will try to answer. In general we will be fixing issues and bugs over the next day or two - if you want to report a bug, then doing it here is fine or you can start a new discussion in the General Interface Help and Bug Reports subboard.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    I think it may be helpful to widen the y axis on many plots. It is hard to see top/bottom of some curves, especially in zoom mode.

    Hmm I like the redesign but there seem to be two bugs.

    1. It seems all previous classifications (all 10.000+) and favourites have gone missing
    2. It seems that I am stuck in the tutorial since I get helful hints and stuff after every new classification. Am I missing something here ?

    I agree with @sneeketeeke.
    There seems to be a bug when classifying known Kepler planets, you can not discuss the star and I am not able to get directed to the talk page.
    I also think there a way too many simulated transits.
    Sometimes when a LC is classified it is not possible to view the next LC,I have to refresh the page, and when doing that I am not redirected to the initial LC. It would also be nice if the zoom feature would be available for the additional Qs of a LC. I would also suggest a 'Regret/undo' button concerning classifing.

    Hiya,

    Yes the information from the old site can't be migrated over. The site was completely rebuilt from the ground up, so we can't carry over favorites and such because we don't have those stars in and we also know treat the star as the subject in talk.
    We think the downside of not being able to migrate that information was worth it. The old Planet Hunters is still up and you access old Talk from the link on the top bar, so you can still access that information.

    Cheers,

    @ mschwamb
    Np. Btw, It would be valuable if the mentioned Q was automatically added to the discussion. It is almost impossible to figure out what members are referring to(when viewing other comments you get directed to Q1.1).

  • Martti_Holst_Kristiansen by Martti_Holst_Kristiansen

    It is not possible to edit at comment unless the page is refreshed when discussing a LC.

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    I'll suggest that - not sure if that's possible - I'll see what the development team can do.

    ~Meg

  • Martti_Holst_Kristiansen by Martti_Holst_Kristiansen in response to mschwamb's comment.

    Or maybe another approach: Make the direction to the same Q as the member just classified instead of Q1.1.

    Love the new interface and feedback - I feel I can finally learn something more about the classifications if I can see different kinds of simulated transits. Great work guys 😃

    I cannot, however, see my previous favourites and classifications - I hope you'll bring them back soon.
    Also, I really liked the feature that I could use to check whether I helped to find any of the potential planet candidates - I hope you'll bring that back too, because it was a great motivator, at least for me.

    Once again - great changes!

    Hi!

    Ok, I understand - I think the new interface is worh losing the data.

    However, you might consider exporting just the number of stars classified and display it at the profile subpage - I imagine it should not be very difficult to do. I know this is very important for some users and it also might be a good motivator for some.
    Plus, if you ever consider adding any gamification features (wich would be absolutely perfect for the project in my opinion) the number of the classified stars could be the basis for achevements/levels and other motivators. And I'm convinced that motivation is one of the most important things in the project - people do come here to help with the science, but the site should also do everything that is possible to make them stay just a little bit longer and make just one more classification 😃

    Cheers!

    Hi to all
    I have one question, sorry if it is too much stupid. I read the analysis made with the previous version of planet hunters do not migrate here in this new version. If participants have discovered something during the previous analysis, will they informed about that?

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Barbalbero's comment.

    Yes if there is something discovered during the previous analysis, we should be or already have contacted the discoverers. The science team definitely wants to make sure everyone gets the credit they deserve.

    We're working on a fix. I'm not sure if there is a second planet you can't see or the transits need to moved slightly. We're working on a fix for that.

    Thanks for the patience while we sort this out. A patch should have been deployed which should fix the not getting to the summary page so you can discuss the light curve.

    Please let me know if you keep seeing the transits off.

    I miss two things in classifying:

    1. Zoom facor 5 days (in addition to 10 days and 2 days). 5 days is the best zoom factor and has been proven in my last 50000 stars or so.
    2. vertical zoom (as in the old interface, or also in fixed steps).

    Thanks, Hans Martin

  • hiwayman by hiwayman

    I'm having real problems getting the classification to move to the next subject. I click 'No Transits' & the circling arrow spins in the centre of the screen, but nothing else happens. I cannot get any further until I go back to the Home page ie. I escape out of the classifications, & then re-enter Planethunters!!! It's like the system is overloading & won't advance to the next star for me to classify.

    Sounds great! I just want to add that it is still not possible to edit comments unless the page is refreshed when discussing a LC.
    Additionally, I would have to agree with Hans Martin especially regarding the second point. This feature would be valuable for discovering possible planetary transits in LCs which contains EBs:
    "I miss two things in classifying: 1) Zoom facor 5 days (in addition to 10 days and 2 days). 5 days is the best zoom factor and has been proven in my last 50000 stars or so. 2) vertical zoom (as in the old interface, or also in fixed steps)."

    We're working on fixing the known planet candidates drawing. A fix was pushed, but it didn't seem to sort the problem. We've turned off the messages for the known-planet candidates so that should fix the issue for the moment while we sort it out.

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to davidbundy77's comment.

    Thanks for the feedback. It's something we plan on adding later into Talk, we just didn't want to hold back the launch of the site waiting for that feature to be implemented. I'm hoping in the coming month, the Zooniverse development will be able to add that feature.

    Cheers,

    Posted

  • Martti_Holst_Kristiansen by Martti_Holst_Kristiansen in response to mschwamb's comment.

    The simulated transit is located at ~10.5 the feature I am talking about is at ~13. This is the same star with two different talks(same Q): http://talk.planethunters.org/#/subjects/APH00002ce & http://talk.planethunters.org/#/subjects/APH00001f2?quarter=1-1.

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    yes, both are simulations and apparently different transiting planets were injected into the same star. So that's why it has two different talk pages for the same quarter. I didn't make the simulations, but that's my guess looking at the meta data.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    Unfortunately, that's been a feature in this version of Talk across all the Zooniverse projects that use this version.. You just have to hit enter twice for it to pick it up you want a new line. I can add it to the bug list, but likely it will be a long while if at all the Zooniverse developers change Talk to read a single enter as a new line.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • Martti_Holst_Kristiansen by Martti_Holst_Kristiansen

    Alright, but in: http://talk.planethunters.org/#/subjects/APH00002ce there is only one listed simulation. Maybe both should be listed so we do not spend time on LC, Skyview, SAP_QUALITY, APO.... as I did in this case. When I classified it the first time it was only the obvious transit that was 'simulated'.

    Posted

  • Martti_Holst_Kristiansen by Martti_Holst_Kristiansen in response to mschwamb's comment.

    Ah.. that is great, good to know 😃.

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    Okay. I think I get what you're saying. You see a second planet transit at ~13 days. My understanding is that only 1 planet was injected into a light curve section of a real Kepler light curve to make a simulated light curve. It could be a new planet transit that was missed that you're seeing at 13 days. Nothing is showing up on the TCE list for this star.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to dantoto's comment.

    I can't reproduce that behavior. Can you give me details of your browser and operating system and version so I can pass it forward to the development team to try and debug?

    Another request:

    I've noticed that you get a red horizontal line in the classifying window when your cursor comes near the Y-axis. It then shows the flux. Can you do the same for the X-axis, i.e. when the cursor goes near the top of the window? It should then show the BJD. Thanks.

  • Martti_Holst_Kristiansen by Martti_Holst_Kristiansen in response to mschwamb's comment.

    Yes that is what I meant. Additionally, I wanted to bring attention to the fact that the same star in the same quarter has two different 'talk discussion'.

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    @Meg

    Again I got a simulation (Q7-3) where the simulated transit were offset to the real ones of a Kepler favorite (KID 11187837, KOI 252, APH00006lb). The offet seems to be about 3.16 days, which is exactly the radius of the Kepler favorite planet! Maybe this applies to the other cases as well?

    Yours, Hans Martin

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to zoo3hans's comment.

    Hi Hans,

    Thanks for reporting the bug.

    One thing to note. Those aren't simulated. That light curve is actually a known planet candidate See the label in Talk above the 140 character comment box. The known planets were supposed to be turned off while the development team fixed the incorrect drawing, but I take it those are still live on the site. The developers now have a fix for the the transit marking for known planet candidates that should be live shortly. So the issue should be fixed now, hopefully.

    If you see any more known planet candidates that show transits incorrectly, do let me know and I'll up the support ticket.

    Thanks,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    that could be because one is a simulation. If you have examples can you please reply with links.

    Thanks,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to zoo3hans's comment.

    I think we'd worry about that causing issues drawing transits, especially if someone marks at the top or bottom of the plot, but maybe something that could be added to Talk when they get the zoom and scrolling working. I can ask the developers.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Another example: APH000071z , Q14-3, KID 12352520 , it says: Planet Radius: 1.53 Earth Radii, Planet Period: 4.577026 days. Two red transits are marked (wrongly), maybe 1.53 atfer the real transit and then the next 4.577 days later?

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to zoo3hans's comment.

    it's a known bug in all the current Zooniverse talks that use this frame work. It isn't all the time, so it's been hard for the development team to track down, but they're aware of it and been trying various things to fix it. I sometimes find going to console view if Firefox or Chrome gets the page to load when it gets in that state.

    That "1x (all days)" gray fading message seems unnecessary to me. It seems to be displayed on every screen while classifying (in an IE11 test only).

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to LiveLongAndPhosphor's comment.

    Hi LiveLongAndPhosphor

    Thanks for the feedback. We have to balance between people that come and do a few classifications and people like yourself who spend more time in the interface. The message is more for people that are new to the site. We did that with the original classification interface too, a reminder would pop up about the scrubber and the zoom. So I don't think we'll be changing that feature, but if it's not fading after the light curve shows up does do let me know, and that we can get adjust.

    Cheers,

    Hi

    From a personal point of view, it does not worry me about the red display not appearing on Simulated transits when zoomed in. I just ensure that I am not zoomed in when finishing a light curve.

    When I mark a transit and click continue, it says there are more transits and highlights the one i already mark

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to heymicha's comment.

    Hi,

    Thanks for being a part of Planet Hunters. That's because that light curve had a simulated transit. You spotted the transit and marked it, but since it's simulated (the simulations will tell us what Planet Hunters can and can't find in terms of different planet types), we wanted to make sure we point it out so people don't think they discovered a brand new planet.

    You can learn more about the simulations and what their role is here (click the simulations tab) and here.

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    Yes but they are simulations and the Yale Planet Hunters science team made the simulations, so I don't know the specific details. It looks like they cut out slightly different portions between the two light curves. the BKJD are in the correct positions, so I think it's okay.

    Another thing: I do not know if you have noticed that the UKIRT images are a bit off. Will the images remain off-centered?

    I probably should add that if the coordinates are added to Skyview the stas are centered.

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Martti Holst Kristiansen's comment.

    Ok, so how can I tell if there is a transit in this image?enter image description here. All the examples I have seen show a much wider range in the Y axis. Maybe the data only goes as far as the graph shows, I don´t know

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to leogali_4's comment.

    Hi,

    This image, I'd say there aren't any transits in that light curve. The y-axis scales with the lowest and highest data points. You're seeing all the data except for maybe one or two very high or very low isolated spurious data points. So you are seeing all the data in that light curve. In this light curve I don't see any dips that I would say have transits.

    I hope this helps if you still have questions or concerns do post a reply, and I'll try my best to answer.

    Cheers,

    Another remark:

    since we get only M-dwarfs to classify (nothing against this - I understand the Scientific reason behind it), I would leave out Cepheids as an example light curve. it seems to confuse the newbie user, as we see lots of #cepheid comments, which is nonsense since Cepheids are big giant stars. It bugs me a bit since I worked myself on the field of Cepheids a few years at the Astronomical Institute of the University of Basel.

    That was a decision to include that made by the PI and the science team. For now we're on M dwarfs. We're working to get the K2 data in as quickly as we can and those could have cepheids in them (so are targeted others will possibly be new). We have limited development time left so that was a decision made so that the developers didn't have to push changes to that part when the K2 data comes online and we have other interface things that need to come online. I'm hoping we'll get the rest of the site functionality up this week or next week.

    Hi Hans and Martti,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Most of this Talk has its build complete. This is the version used across the Zooniverse now. We had to switch to be able to implement the light curve viewer and the object discussion subboards (which I think make it easier to find who is talking about what stars). There may be able to be some improvements based on feedback from the Planet Hunters community since we're new to this Talk design, but I don't know what is changes are easy to make and can't be made (because of time and difficulty).

    The best thing to do is to list your suggestions and feedback about new Talk in the Features Request thread so I can point the development team there and ask them what they can accommodate.

    Cheers,

    Please can the ability to unlock the Y axis be reinstated, with most LCs this doesn't matter all that much, but with a variable with large amplitude changes, shallow transits become invisible, unless you can spread the data points out vertically.

    Unfortunately that's how this interface is designed, so we're not going to be implementing that at this time. I can potentially see if future maintenance of the site would allow adding this feature to the Talk light curve viewer.

    Hello:

    I'm consistently running into known Kepler planets and simulated planets that are appearing in, above and/or within the noise of the light curve. Some are even appearing on the curve a flare makes. To date I have 40ish screenshots of this behavior.
    I can zip up the images and send them to you if you like.

    Thanks,

    David.

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to myrikhan's comment.

    Hi David,

    Some of the Kepler planet candidates will be in the noise so will some of the simulations. We don't know what the project can find, so we have simulations with a wide range of depths to understand what the project as a collective can and can't detect in terms of planet properties. Though it shouldn't be consistently, if you want to send me the images please email them to mschwamb@asiaa.sinica.edu.tw. If you have the APH ids please send those as well that gives the development team something to specifically look at and test.

    Usually what happens is that I will mark a pretty obvious transit and when I submit it, there is a message that there is at least one simulated transit in the light curve, but there will be no red dots shown anywhere in the light curve.

APH ids will be very helpful so we can see if it's that the info telling the interface where to plot the red points is incorrect or if is something up with the code that plots the red.

    Seems to have coincided with the change to the link color: it used to be a very pale cyan which, on a pale grey background, was hard for many to see/read (that, apparently, was by far the most common feedback/suggestion on v2 Talk); it's now been changed to a somewhat darker hue.

    Hi,

    I'm not 100% sure what you exactly mean by a restart/reset button. You can remove a drawn transit box by hitting the x on top of each transit box to remove it. Since we're only asking one task now in the new interface we didn't think we needed it, since you can remove a transit box drawn by mistake.

    I hope that helps answer your question.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to Ptd's comment.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you like the new interface.

    The graphic design of the interface including letting the star background through likely won't change much. It's a design choice made by the Zooniverse development team. I felt similarly when the site was being built, and based on my feedback the background transparency was darkened a few more shades before launch.

    Most people's eyes are okay with it from the beta test feedback, but your eyes might be like mine and be a bit more sensitive. The shading at the current level is okay for me and I can do a bunch of classifications without noticing it, but I'll make a note of it. If enough people think it should be darker, the development team may darken the transparency a shade.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to JKD's comment.

    Hi JKD,

    What you noted is because of the new classification interface integration with Talk. The Currently Online tells you who actually has a PH Talk open in a web browser. The Recents includes the 140 character comments which you can now make from the summary page in the classification interface. You can also go directly to the subject page as well from there too. So that's why it may looks like where people are on. More people are commenting, but they're not necessarily at that moment checking Talk. We're the first project to get this type of Talk integration.

    I hope this answers your question.

    the stellar properties are incorrect. the planet radii is correct but the stellar radii are all M dwarfs but the stellar properties were revised to better values than what was in the fits headers that were used to extract the values for the simulations.

    Hi Hans,

    I'm sorry about that. I've noticed since launch and it has a support ticket in. We had a unit issue with the UKIRT link as well so when then got fixed we figured out that's it because of the precision of the RA value stored in the database we're not getting the star on center. The precision in the database is not high enough for the positioning. The Dec is okay. I updated the support ticket, but the development team has to reload and update all the RA values of the target stars.

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience. There's much I can do other than update the support ticket again. I will do that now. When the Zooniverse development team has some maintenance time to devote to fixing the more minor post launch PH bugs they will get to this. In the meantime, you can just edit the url that the UKIRT link goes to and put in the correct RA which you can get off of either the MAST or stellar properties link. I know that's the long way to do it, but at least temporarily should work.

    Cheers,

Ok, please let me know because I thought it was pretty cool to be able to look at the graph of the star's for different periods, in part because if you thought or were sure of a transit you could try to spot it at some other time. Ok, bye.

    In the new site we don't currently allow the data download option and have changed how we list stars. The old Planet Hunters site is still functioning and available right now so you can go to http://old.planethunters.org/ and it will bring up the original Planet Hunters site so you can do your class lesson.

    You can no examine a full star on the Talk discussion pages. You can find out more here..

    If you need ids for stars you can email me at mschwamb@asiaa.sinica.edu.tw and I'll get you a list of the ids for those stars you want for the new Planet Hunters web platform.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    The Planet Hunters website was completely rebuilt from the ground up, so we can't carry over favorites and such because we don't have those stars in and we also know treat the star as the subject in talk. We think the downside of not being able to migrate that information was worth it. The old Planet Hunters is still up and you access old Talk from the link on the top bar, so you can still access that information. You can find more about the site rebuild here.

    The same thing for the favorites, the system is different now and we now treat the whole star with the same id (before we were each individual 30-day light curve chunk had a Zooniverse Planet Hunters id). You can still access your old favorites on the old Planet Hunters site, and the Favorites capability exists for this version of the site so you can make new favorites off of what you see in the new interface.

    In terms of data download data we don't have that feature in the new version of the site. Thanks for the feedback. I've made the suggestion to the development team, but it may be a long time before they get to adding this feature if they agree to add it.

    You can access all the data for the star, that's now available through Talk directly. You can find more details here.

    I hope this answers your questions. If it doesn't or you have any more., please do reply

    Cheers,

    I tried to access the old planet hunters, but it comes up with the message that the website is unavailable. Also have we lost information like " viewing all the stars you have seen around which we have discovered potential eclipsing binaries!" and
    "viewing all the stars you have seen around which we have potentially discovered planets?"

    It works for me. Does http://old.planethunters.org/candidates# not work for you? in terms of the data we're currently not showing those stars that are in the candidate pages here on new Planet Hunters. Right now we're focusing on M dwarfs only., but it should still be accessible on the old site.

    KID 7603200 is an example for misleading information
    almost not visible signals with p=10.3d are marked (maybe as SIM, but I’m not sure) and other obvious signals related to confirmed planets (KOI 314 = 3 planets with p= 13.781d and p=23.089d) are not marked nor at least mentioned on the „Comment Page“

    I don't know if this was addressed or not in the earlier postings (no search feature) but I wanted to know if the developers could put a listing of hashtags on the side after a classification is made. I'm not going to easily remember the rrlyrae hashtag as easily as pulsating hashtag.

    Thanks for pointing it out. I'm sorry. There's a problem with the known planet transit marking is only done one planet and not all of them if it is a multiplanet system. The bug report is in to the development team. There's not much more I can do to inform them about the issue. The development team is very busy, but they will find time hopefully soon to fix these issue with the new Planet Hunters. I'm sorry for the frustration while we sort these bugs out.

    It's a good idea. I definitely make the suggestion, but I'm not sure that will get implemented any time soon. In the short term I can make a blog post that you could list all the hashtags with the examples that we could use as a reference.

    Also do feel free to use your own hashtags too. The science team made a small list of suggested hashtags but I could see many more that could be used to describe light curves.

I click 'No transit' and go to the next page, featuring different light curve within left hand side pinkish / reddish block than previous / still in background curve. Is it a tutorial page / section? If I write hashtag will it apply to the previous curve or this new in small image on the left hand side?

    Though not the OP, I find it puzzling that after advancing from the screen displaying a light curve, to a screen carrying other Planet Hunters' comments -- many of which are specific to the curve values at a specific date -- there seems to be no way to revisit the curve, and visually examine the feature that was commented on.

    Is there a [BACK] button I am overlooking? (Browser's BACK arrow takes me back to a log-in screen!)

    Thanks for any advice.

    Problems with the "back" button are endemic across Talk, and, the developers tell me, are largely an symptom of the platform upon which it was built. It's one of the biggest things to make sure works properly in the next version of Talk!

    As for the problem with the next star loading... Not sure. @mschwamb, has that been put through as a bug report?

    I found the comment on page 12 of this thread:

    Another problem: lately the new classify page is not reloading properly: I just click "Next subject", but the page then remains the same and displays the button "No transits", which cannot be clicked. Reloading the page usually get's you with a fresh general classify page where you have to login again, it's really annoying.

    Followed with:

    I use normaly firefox (version 32.0.3), but the problem of not loading properly the next star in the classify page happens also with Google chrome (Version 37.0.2062.120) and also on different computers (Windows XP, Ubuntu (version Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS),, SLES 11 SP3). Just to let you know (and especially the developers team).

    Hi Martti and Darren,

    I can't replicate it at the moment. Is anyone else having the same issue? Is it happening every five light curves. I can put in a bug request, but if it's not easily to replicate, it may take time for the development team to track down.

    Hello,

    The new user interface for general classifying is really nice, i think it's a great improvement. I haven't experienced any bugs or working problems on the new website, it seems to run well on chrome.

    Posted

  • JenniferConnors by JenniferConnors

    I do somewhat miss the design from old planet hunters talk under account where you can see a nice overview of discussions, talk, and collections. It was quite well designed.
    Quickly looking over the 20 pages of "help and bugs during relaunch" it looks like everyone is working very hard to for our new interface.
    I like how BJD was added to the top of the light curve graphs and we have all quarters available.

    I may be restating some things here, this is what I noticed can use some corrections:
    In that the links to old talk either don't exist or can be linked to different stars.
    The Ukirt images are not being cut correctly.

    Also interesting it seems we are looking at a specific set of smaller type background type stars from the same areas in Lyra Star Constellation?
    I hope everything gets running in unison soon,
    Thanks
    JC

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Hi Jennifer,

    yes the UKIRT images do not show the correct RA, but the DECL is correct. Meg has written somewhere how this arises. And yes, only M_dwarf are shown nowadays. So until K2 data arrives we will not see any Cepheids for example (or other giant stars).

    Cheers, Hans Martin

    Posted

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to JenniferConnors@Rocketmail.com's comment.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I wanted to echo what Hans said and provide a bit more context. .

    Thanks for your post. Yes we're showing a subset of the Kepler field stars at the moment: The M dwarfs. You can read more about the reason why in this blog post.

    The UKIRT links and the Talk links are open bug reports into to the development team. I can't do much more on my end, but I can remind them about these open issues and when the Zooniverse development team has some spare time, they will get to fixing these.

    For UKIRT, it's the RA that doesn't have enough precision in the database, so it's moving the UKIRT center off where it should be. The workaround is to go to the Stellar properties link and copy the RA (right ascension) and then when you to the UKIRT link, replace the RA in the url with the one from the stellar properties.

    I hope this helps, and I hope that the final remaining glitches especially in Talk get resolved soon.

    Cheers,

    ~Meg

    Simulations are still showing? Can you post a screen shot? I don't know if there are K2 simulations, the last time I heard a few months ago the PI had decided not to include simulations into the first batch of K2 data, but they may have changed.

    The K2 stars don't have radii estimates like the Kepler field stars do so that's why that field isn't included for those stars.

    The simulations amongst the K2 data are from earlier dates than the new data and so can be easily spotted by those that are paying attention to the timescale. I am guessing this isn't what you want.

  • mschwamb by mschwamb scientist in response to davidbundy77's comment.

    Yeah, I can see that's an issue, but the decision was made by the rest of the science team to leave in the simulations from the Kepler field data. So most volunteers who come and do a few classifications will not notice the difference ,but you're right more seasoned people like yourself will be able to spot the simulations. Please do try and classify the simulations as you would other light curves rather than skipping them, it would be a big help.

Why open a NEW TAB? When the person tries to navigate back to the Planet Hunter's page through browser back buttons (say they were in FAQ) it will instead return them to Mission and not to their last visited page. They may become lost or frustrated.

    The K2 data is available now it was released about a month ago.

    Regarding your other question I think the PH science team is working on something like that. The following section can be found in the PH blog "Just out! New data from the Kepler mission":

    "We are also trying to improve our turn-around time for PH results. Instead of waiting until we obtain telescope time to carry out follow-up data and publish a paper (sometimes a year later!) we will put the high probability transit candidates that you identify on the “Planet Hunters Object of Interest” (or PHOI – which I think is pronounced something like “fooey”)."

    You can still access all your findings here:

    Yes, this should work for you. Let us know if you have any issues accessing your results from the old Planet Hunters!

    Any chance Search could be expanded to list all occurrences where the text appears in a thread? (page 2, 5, 8, 10 would really help).

    Full-text search will be implemented in the next-gen Talk that we hope to have out later this year!

    I can do about 4 or 5 stars and then the PlanetHunters site seems to hang on an endless loop. Just reporting this bug....

    Same here.

    Same here. (it happens with all distributions I have tried: linux, windows, iOS, etc. and all browsers: firefox, ie, chrome, etc.)

    Problem has been reported - i am sure a resolution will be found shortly.

  • DZM by DZM admin

    I just checked, and the Planet Hunters developer is aware of the problem.

    He's outrageously busy with a deadline, but says he can try to take a look tomorrow. I will keep everyone posted!! 😃

    Something else: lately I get the same star (and quarter) served twice, for example:

    still not loading 2 or 3 times and then its not loading at all ....

    Yes, it's really ANNOYING!

    Posted

  • DZM by DZM admin

    I checked in with the developers, and was told that "it looks like the interface is breaking when trying to load data that is either inaccessible or doesn’t exist."

    Two devs are supposed to be looking at it and fixing it, but I didn't get a response when I checked in with them on Friday. I've already started bugging them again today.

    Thanks for staying on me!!

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Thank you DZM for looking into this. It really spoils the PH experience to a large degree.

    Posted

  • DZM by DZM admin

    It should be fixed now. Is it?

    Posted

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Dear DZM

    unfortunately it's still making troubles. I does NOT load the next subject after 3-5 light curves. It then need at least 10 seconds (or even more) to actually reload the page with new data.

    Tested with Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Firefox 37.0.1 or Firefox Nightly 40.0a1 (2015-04-09) or Google Chrome 41.0.2272.118-1 or rekonq-2.4.2. Using the latter I'm informed that it loaded OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.4) (7u75-2.5.4-1~trusty1), so maybe it has to do with Java.

    No problem over here anymore. Tested with palemoon & firefox nightly.

  • raptor71 by raptor71

    Is there a fix for the lack vertical zoom? Or a vertical adjustment of any kind? Seems like others have asked but I haven't read an answer. I am interested in doing these classifications, but this user interface is not what I'd call helpful.

    Dear x303

    what operating system do you use? What java version and/or icedtea version do you have?

    Posted

  • x303 by x303 in response to zoo3hans's comment.

    windows7, java 8. Tried the latest versions of IE, Firefox, Palemoon x64 and Firefox nightly. All work, except opera 12.17. With that browser it loads forever.
    Also tried it with firefox under mint 17.1 x64 and ubuntu 15.04 x64. Also no problems....

    Posted

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Thanks x303

    I therefore tried Windows7, latest IE, latest Java -> still the same annoying problem of NOT loading the next subject every 3-5 trial. Also tried iOS (iPad) with Safari, Windows XP with IE or Firefox, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on different hardware with Firefox, SuSE SLES11sp3 with Firefox -> with ALL of them I encountered the same ugly BUG.

    Also tried ubuntu 14.04 x64 (i'm using it now), but still no problem for me.

    Well as a frequent contributor here, is it possible your user id reached some kind of limit that x303 has not reached yet? You could test this theory easily enough by creating a new id. Just an idea of course.

  • x303 by x303

    What limit ? I'm 'here' since galaxyzoo 1 started.....

    Posted

  • DZM by DZM admin in response to zoo3hans's comment.

    It's possible that you've classified every available subject on your account?

    If you're the only one having this bug, that's possibly what happened. Also especially if you can create a second account... I agree with @ajamyajax -- do you have the same bug if you try with a different account?

    Thanks!!

    Posted

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans in response to DZM's comment.

    Ok, I'll have a try. Although I remember that other users also complained about this bug.

    Posted

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Hm, maybe you're right after all. With a new account (andromeda2015) I get again simulations and no "hanging". Maybe it has to do that I'm logged in from several computers (office, laptop which I use on my commuter train, at home). Or there is a database problem with too many entries in my case. Sigh.

  • DZM by DZM admin in response to zoo3hans's comment.

    The other bug that we had before, with stuff not loading after a few classifications, was fixed. I think this one is just you being a devoted classifier who has seen all the currently active data. In other words: you rock! 😃

    Posted

  • zoo3hans by zoo3hans

    Thanks DZM. 😃
    I was hoping that I could contribute to classify all the K2-C1 data. I look forward to see more K1 data or the new K2-C2 data. Good luck to everybody!

    On iPad, you can mark transits, but if you do, the button still says "no transits". Can we get this fixed for this platform?

    Posted

  • vladthegreen by vladthegreen

    Where can I find a full list of the hashtags cases? It would be nice to have a list of all the examples for "use the tag..." I cannot remember all the good examples posted there, it would be great to be able to review them all in 1 page.

    Posted

  • vladthegreen by vladthegreen

    Other thing: some classifications contain simulated transits, which are displayed just after you press "no transits" or "finished". That is interesting, but you cannot zoom in after the "we included a simulated transit here" message. It would be super helpful if we could zoom in into the observations, to learn from the simulations. Example: https://talk.planethunters.org/?_ga=2.180390823.1245166298.1504400030-1434517861.1504399393#/subjects/APH0001909

    I am at the star information page and I highlight a potential transit, but no transit button doesn't change. I, then, click on the button to go post a comment. Are my observations being recorded? I just noticed this happening today.

  • jupitergreen by jupitergreen

    There seems to be a bug that only allows one frame to be examined. When I sign in I can examine the first frame and move to the comment section. when I enter the #tag and try to move to the next frame, the program returns me to the first frame and locks up. The only way out of the lock up is to sign off.

    I'm having issues where my Zooniverse home page does not show the accurate number of classifications I worked on in Planet Hunters. However, the counter works for other projects that I'm a part of.
